And the Bruins have 7 million, but also can use Savard's LTIR money, so they actually have 11ish.
But, when the cap goes down, they don't gain any cap space and have to resign Rask and Horton.
If they use a buyout on Briere, it means they aren't going to give up anything significant for him, which still means St. Louis wouldn't have to give up what Philly would want if they want to move Briere.
